Napa Valley has long been heralded for its wine making, but its cultural landscape is equally noteworthy. Warm, soft colors of this design mix capture the free-spirited serenity the Valley perpetuates with key concepts. California poppies blossom late spring to early summer, but being an annual, and reseeding poorly in USDA Zones 4-8, their effect is recreated with perennial Icelandic and Oriental varieties. The wild mustard that grows in between the vines blooms vibrant yellow in winter, planted centuries ago by Franciscan Padre Junipero Serra as he traveled throughout California. As Wild Mustard is a noxious weed illegal for sale in several states and a heavy seeding annual at that, the effect is recaptured instead by Linaria vulgaris. Supporting flowering perennials bridge the gaps in bloom time and keep in accordance with color palette, structure, and habit. A must for linear, small or Mediterranean Gardens and Meadows.
